WHY WE LOVE IT
At just a little over one square mile, Monaco is the world’s second smallest country - only the Vatican is smaller. The tiny nation, surrounded by France on three sides a beach on the fourth, packs luxury, Michelin starred restaurants, a harbor with a flotilla of multi-million dollar yachts, five star hotels and high fashion shopping into that mile, making it a playground for the rich and famous for over 150 years.
Renowned chef Joël Robuchon has 26 Michelin Stars across his 17 restaurants. Joël Robuchon, the restaurant bearing his name, owns two of them. The Mediterranean- influenced selection of prix-fixe cuisine focuses on the highest quality ingredients in a dining room with an open kitchen and sweeping terrace views.
There’s a reason the Casino De Monte-Carlo has appeared in two James Bond films. The Belle Epoque architecture of the building, that first opened its doors in 1863, evokes the luxury and joie de vivre of Monaco. The classically appointed gaming rooms and terraces are the perfect backdrop for an evening of international intrigue in a bespoke tuxedo.
